In September 2019 we will be starting the new academic year in a brand new school building. This is a fabulous building and brings a brand new chapter to the Yorkswood School community and to the wider community. As the school develops we will have access to fantastic facilities including a MUGA and dance/theatre workshop space. We have a dedicated community space which is becoming increasingly busy and a part of our wider community commitment. We also have an attached neighbourhood nursery which caters for 0-5 year olds. We believe that the successful candidates will be part of a very exciting school that is continually looking to make improvements for our children and families while offering staff the opportunity to grow their own skills and develop their leadership potential. We have many staff at Yorkswood who have been with the school for many years. This is testament to their commitment and to the ethos and feel of the school. We are looking for teachers who can be part of this ethos.
